Within Hearing

An elderly husband became concerned about the hearing of his wife. He asked his Doctor what to do about it.
'There's a simple way to check' said the Doctor 'stand about 40 yards from your wife and say something in a normal voice, then if she doesn't hear you gradually go closer to establish her level of hearing.'
So the husband took up this suggestion the next day.
He stood in the room next to the kitchen where his wife was preparing the evening meal.
'What's for supper dear?' No reply.
He moved closer to 30 yards and asked again. No reply. Then to 20 yards. No reply again. 10 yards - no reply!
He was really worried and moved right into the kitchen and asked 'Can you tell me what's for supper?'
'For goodness sake' she replied 'for the Fifth Time, it is Chicken!'
